Not a big fan of speculation, but the fire started ON opening day of rifle season in that section of the Los Padres National Forest.
There's a good chance they will determine it was started by an open flame from a campfire or someone target practicing before a hunt.
Just my two cents as to the possible cause, as many may be asking how a fire could have started in such a remote area with no lightning and lack of powerlines in the area.
Again, I have absoultely no proof that this was the cause, but the timing seems rather coincidental.
